In another astonishing act of treason, "Israeli" Arab MKs went to pay their respects at a funeral for arch-terrorist George Habash, founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization. Habash, 83, died Saturday at his home in Amman following an angioplasty earlier in the week. Habash’s PFLP carried out a murderous attack at Ben Gurion Airport in 1972 with Japanese Red Army terrorists, leaving 24 people dead.
The PFLP was also responsible for the 1976 hijacking of an Air France plane that was forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. Israeli commandos rescued 100 passengers being held hostage by terrorists in a daring raid led by Yoni Netanyahu, brother of Likud leader, Binyamin Netanyahu.
United Arab List-Ta’al Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi and Balad party Knesset Member Jamal Zahalka traveled to Amman with other members of Zahalka’s party for the ceremony. These two MKs are representative of the feelings of their constituencies, "Israeli" Arabs and by attending the funeral of a Jew-murdering terrorist who committed himself to destroying the very state in whose government these MKs sit, just shows how far they are removed from the mainstream Israeli Jewish conscience.
Tibi and his party members first traveled to Ramallah Sunday to offer their condolences to Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas.
“He was one of the most prominent leaders of the PLO and always fought for independence,” Tibi said, adding that although Habash often disagreed with PLO founder Yasser Arafat, the two men deeply respected each other.
Arafat co-founded the Fatah terrorist organization with Abbas in 1969, heading the group, and its parent organization, the PLO until his death in 2004, when Abbas inherited the position.
Zahalka has often declared his support for the position of enemy nations claiming that Israel has no right to be in Jerusalem, referring to the Old City as “occupied” and to its Jewish residents as “right-wing settlers.” Zahalka also told Syrian government radio in Damascus last year, “We don’t see Syria as an enemy state.”
Speaking last year at an event to honor the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the PFLP terror group, Zahalka told participants that Israeli Arabs “refuse to recognize Israel as a Jewish country.”
Why is it that no one refuses to accept Iran or Saudi Arabia because of the Islamic creed, the shahada, on the Saudi flag, or the words 'allahu ackbar' or the Iranian flag? And then there is the Palestinian Authority, whose Basic Law provides in Article 4 that "Islam is the official religion in Palestine."
It is past time for Israel's leaders to recognize the fact that the Arabs will never, ever, accept Israel as a Jewish state no matter how many terrorist are freed, money is transfered or how many acres of land to be given for an Arab state. According to them, "Islam dominates and is not dominated". Every single interaction with the non-Islamic world is marked with the attitude of the Infidels "owing" Muslims something. Muslims cannot tolerate the idea of non-Muslims, whose place is servitude and humilation, of having the upper hand over Muslims, especially the hated Jewish "sons of pigs and monkeys" being the masters of land in the heart of the Islamic world. The only question is when the leaders, or the people, will wake up and what cost in Jewish blood.
